Marijuana is by far the No. 1 cause of student expulsions from Colorado public schools

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
marijuana-expulsions-in-schoolsDENVER - New state numbers show marijuana is the number one reason students are being kicked out of Colorado public schools -- and pot expulsions dwarf all other causes, like alcohol, disobedience and weapons violations.
 
In 2012-2013, 230 public school students were expelled for marijuana -- or 32 percent of the 720 total kids removed from schools that year, according the Colorado Department of Education. It was the first year that schools officials separated marijuana from other drugs in statistics quantifying the types of violations leading to expulsion.
 
Marijuana expulsions were more than double the figure for the second highest cause for expulsion -- detrimental behavior. And pot expulsions were more than triple the numbers for disobedience, weapons, alcohol and all other drug violations.
 
Educators worry that if more students are being kicked out of school for marijuana, more teens are likely using the drug.
 
This raises another question: Is legalization of marijuana in Colorado -- for both medical and recreational uses -- making pot more accessible to teens?
 
"We definitely see it a lot more at school," said 15-year-old Briana Major, a sophomore at East High School in Denver.
 
Where do students find marijuana?
 
"Just about everywhere," said Brennan Link, a 16-year-old junior at East High.
 
There's no denying pot has and always will be available to teens.
 
But has it become more accessible to minors since the 2010 state regulation of medical marijuana dispensaries and the 2012 vote to legalize recreational marijuana?
 
"I don't think most parents are handing it to their kids. I think it's more a case of it's available, so kids are taking it," said Christine Harms, director of the Colorado School Safety Resource Center.
 
Recreational marijuana remains illegal for people under age 21 in Colorado.
 
But here's what teens we spoke with say their peers think about the whole marijuana issue.
 
"They think that since it is legal, that even if they're not of the age that it's legal. They can still do it," Major said.
 
That's what has educators concerned.

Marijuana; Schedule One

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
weed-schedule-oneBy rating the level of danger in a drug, the government can use it to scare people in to steering clear. Or so they think. While they may be attempting to do this for the right reasons, they are so wrong. Cannabis, a drug that has been proven by many studies and backed by many doctors, is a schedule one in the Controlled Substances Act. Most people are aware that this schedule also includes heroin, LSD, MDMA, and peyote.
 
There is no possible way that marijuana is more dangerous than MDMA and absolutely not more deadly than heroin. This classification means that cannabis has zero medical value. Weird, considering the amount of amazing qualities this plant seems to have for people with cancer, depression, arthritis, etc. Scheduling cannabis is completely unnecessary, seeing as how harmful the other drugs in this category. Not only that but studies show that cannabinoids drastically reduce the size of tumors in mice, if not completely curing the furry rodents of the tumors all together. Does that really sound that dangerous?
 
If the government wants to categorize marijuana, they should be categorizing as the most beneficial medicine available to people. Even though the plant is illegal, there are pharmaceutical companies that produce synthetic cannabis pills that are supposed to rival the effects of the plant. However, a plant like this is only the most effective in it's raw form. Synthetic cannabis doesn't effect the body the same way as the natural buds and has been found to be pretty ineffective.
 
The truth is that marijuana has been considered a negative thing for so long that some people have closed their minds to the possibility of a medicinal value. By keeping the plant in the Schedule 1 category, the negative stigma remains. There is a medical value to this plant, whether or not the government will admit it (we all know that they know it's beneficial). As more studies come forward and the positive message surrounding marijuana grows, more people will detached from that negative image that has been associated with cannabis for so long. There is no way that the government or anybody else can deny the power of this plant for long. Now, it is only a matter of time before the movement becomes too big to ignore.
